Seriously Nintendo, make a bigger hard drive and I'll buy one.

What's wrong with using an external hard drive? Do you live in a shoebox or something and you have no room for anything else?

You end up paying these companies more for the memory they include than an external HD. No one cares if YOU don't want one laying around because it is a better deal overall.

i love what nintendo has done, we are free to choose whatever hdd we want, unlike the competion, with propietary hdd that cost a lot or propietary mem cards..$99 for 32 gb lol


PS3 can install any 2.5" internal HDD. Internal is better than external. I like my consoles neat and tidy, I don't want extra wires and attachments sticking out of them.

The option to have external is good, but like wifi, why does nintendo take the other option off the table? And 32gb is too low to begin with, PS3 and 360 have like 300gb HDD's standard these days, PS3 bloody started off with 60gb 6 years ago.

^^ 32GB is plenty of space unless you're going digital on the retail games. And even then, they wouldn't be able to put in a large enough hard drive without pushing up the price way higher than anyone would like. As Reggie explained, storage prices are dropping so fast that they'd be left with something outdated and too expensive if they put in anything that was "big enough". By letting us buy our own peripheral storage, it costs less for everybody, particularly for people who are satisfied with the 32GB and don't need to buy anything more.

Then explain why I have no room left on either my 250 GB HDD in my 360 S or my 120 GB HDD in my PS3 Slim and I don't own a single retail digital game.

And even then, they wouldn't be able to put in a large enough hard drive without pushing up the price way higher than anyone would like


So they used a tablet controller to push the price up instead. If Sony can put a 500 GB HDD and Microsoft can put a 320 GB HDD in their (apparently) more advanced consoles and sell them for less than the basic Wii U then Nintendo don't have any excuse.

I would honestly lie to know how you did that. My launch PS3 is only half filled up because I rip shows/movies onto it. My 360 still has loads of space.

Also, did you just compare a controller (the thing that determines the way you play a video game), to memory space? Really?

I have an external for my PS3 that is constantly sitting beside it because it's jammed full of videos and what not that I watch on it.

Get one, deal with it, grow up.

I could piss out 32gb and at least 5 of that is taken. And before anyone says it I don't want an external hard drive sticking out of it.


A flash drive is the one that would be sticking out

This is an external HDD

That wouldn't look that bad next to a Wii U

I'm aware, I meant lying beside it.
Either way I don't want that.


... who cares?? Hide it behind the console if you have to. Or even behind the TV console if you're THAT hell bent on never having to see the thing. Sheesh.
